Norman Reedus Wants His Own Star Wars Stormtrooper Cameo
The names of the actors who scored secret cameos on Star Wars: The Force Awakens is so long and so prestigious it would be a blockbuster cast all on its own. From Daniel Craig to Simon Pegg to half the supporting cast of Game of Thrones, the cameo list was a veritable who's-who of geek culture. That being said, there are always going to be some actors who get left out. In a new interview, star of The Walking Dead and all-round comic con darling Norman Reedus admits that he's definitely keen on scoring his own Star Wars cameo at some point in the future.

Here's what Reedus said when Salon asked him if he feels working on The Walking Dead has helped him secure better roles away from the show. 

Opening quote
It's absolutely opened more doors. I would be lying otherwise. I've always done art shows–photography, painting, sculpture–and now I get offered art shows all the time. Am I doing different work? Sometimes I'm doing the same stuff, but more doors are opening. I think anybody can have a little success and get offered more stuff. I'm not against blockbusters or indie films. I like a good story and good people involved. Would I fucking play a Stormtrooper in "Star Wars"? Fuck, yeah! Cool outfit!"
Closing quote

Given his history on The Walking Dead, we'd quite like to see Reedus getting to take a Wookiee bowcaster out for a spin, maybe even using it on those zombie stormtroopers from Joe Schreiber's old EU novel, Death Troopers. However, we'll happily settle for him donning the white and black Stormtrooper armor we all know and love.

Let's hope somebody at Disney is listening.
